NELLIS AFB, NV – The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds aerial demonstration team will swoop into Ellsworth AFB next summer.
The Thunderbirds will also perform at F.E. Warren AFB, Wyo., July 22; and at Grand Forks AFB, N.D., Aug. 1-2.
The Thunderbirds fly the F-16 Falcon, called the Air Force’s premier multi-role fighter jet. The team has flown the Falcon since 1983. It is the ninth aircraft flown since the Thunderbirds were formed in 1953.
The performance is a mix of six F-16s flying in formation and solo routines.
